Rock royalty in the form of Weezer
and Foo Fighters join the Alt18 Countdown on SiriusXM’s AltNation this week with two solid new additions to anthems of alternative rock, but it may be “Stargazing” by The Neighbourhood with the strongest debut. The Knocks collab with Foster the People is storming to No. 1 with “All About You.” For now it’ll have to settle at No. 2, because it’s MISSIO back up top with “Can You Feel the Sun?”
CORRECTION: Foo Fighters’ “Waiting on the War” join the 1/23/21 countdown. That’s what I get for skipping a week.
For anyone relying on this site and social accounts (@findingalt18) to track the countdown, apologies for missing a week. I’ll circle back on the 1/23/21 countdown so we can keep a running tally of 2021, but for now I’m just getting caught back up.
I’d love your thoughts on the countdown and any alt music you’re into these days. I’m going to mix in the Download15’s and some Spotify playlists I’m following, so open to any and all ideas. Maybe I can land a band interview this year. Happy February, all!
